Overseas Development Institute research documents 24 examples of progress in
developing countries across the globe. The Development Progress Stories’
research lens has identified 4 drivers of progress. The 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness being held in Busan offers
a chance to strengthen and renew partnerships but which relationships matter
most to donors and recipients and why?
How is the Busan conference shaping up? What is the latest thinking on the outcome document? With only one month to go until the biggest aid conference in years, ODI hosts Brenda Killen, the head of Aid Effectiveness at the OECD and therefore at the heart of pulling the conference together. Brenda will present the third monitoring survey of the Paris Declaration for the first time in the UK. In discussion with Brenda will be a selection of major donors. Questions this event will seek to answer include: what are DFID and other donors hoping for from Busan and how do they expect it to change their ways of working, if at all? There will be time for questions and comments from the floor.
Most commentators agree that the additional funding developing countries will need to respond to climate change will require a major flow of finance from richer countries to poorer ones. This ODI Background Note compares aid and climate finance and the different options available.
